The final day of Glorious Goodwood features the Stewards’ Cup over six furlongs, one of the big Goodwood betting races of the week. This is one of the most valuable sprint handicaps of the season and many past winners have gone on to success in Group races. Lochsong (1992), Coastal Bluff (1996), Danetime (1997) and Borderlescott (2006) all won here before enjoying Group 1 glory.
There is also a consolation Stewards’ Cup called the Stewards’ Sprint for horses who did not make the cut for the feature race. The Lillie Langtry Stakes for fillies and mares over a mile and three-quarters provides the Group 2 action on the final day.
One of the most competitive races contested during the entirety of Glorious Goodwood is the Stewards’ Cup. This race was taken last year by the David O’Meara trained Summerghand, who has developed into a smart pattern level sprinter.
This tends to be won by a less exposed horse, however, with three of the last six renewals going to unexposed three-year-old sprinters who were sent off the race favourite. One horse who fits that profile for the 2021 renewal is First Folio, who was an impressive winner at York last time out.

Stradivarius has become a standing dish at Glorious Goodwood in recent years and broke the record of Double Trigger (1995, 1997, 1998) when registering his fourth consecutive Goodwood Cup success in 2020. Other multiple winners of this race include Persian Punch (2001, 2003), Yeats (2006, 2007) and Big Orange (2015, 2016). There will be plenty of Glorious Goodwood tips for Stradivarius and Frankie Dettori as they bid to make racing history with an unprecedented fifth success.
The supporting card features the Group 2 Vintage Stakes for two-year-olds, won in 2019 in spectacular style by subsequent champion juvenile Pinatubo. Past winners include Highland Reel (2014) and subsequent 2000 Guineas winner Galileo Gold (2015). The Vintage Stakes is followed by more Group 2 action in the seven-furlong Lennox Stakes, taken last year by Godolphin’s Space Blues.
The highlight on day one of Glorious Goodwood 2021 will be the return of Stradivarius, the undisputed King of Glorious Goodwood after four consecutive victories at this meeting. John Gosden’s star stayer does arrive here under a little bit of a cloud compared to previous years, however, having only managed to finish fourth in the Ascot Gold Cup last time out.
The feature race on day one of the Glorious Goodwood festival is the Group 1 Goodwood Cup. A race won for the last four years by Bjorn Nielsen’s superstar stayer Stradivarius. Stradivarius is now the outright most successful horse in the race’s 208-year history, and should regular pilot Frankie Dettori manage to steer him to another victory on Tuesday, then he will become the outright most successful jockey in the history of the Goodwood Cup (6 wins). Stradivarius is likely to feature prominently in the 2021 Glorious Goodwood tips.

The Group 1 Sussex Stakes is the feature race on day 2 of the Glorious Goodwood Festival, a race which carries prize money of £1 million. Notable past winners of this race include Kris (1979), Chief Singer (1984), Zilzal (1989), Giant’s Causeway (2000) and Rock Of Gibraltar (2002). Arguably the most famous winner of the Sussex Stakes was Frankel (2011, 2012), the only horse to achieve two victories in this race.
Last year’s renewal was won by Marcus Tregoning and Jim Crowley with Mohaather. The four-year-old was gaining his first success in Group 1 company. Unfortunately he picked up a subsequent injury and was retired to stud. Day 2 of Glorious Goodwood also includes the Group 3 Molecomb Stakes for two-year-olds over five furlongs.
Three-year-olds have a good record in the Sussex Stakes and look certain to be well represented this year. 2000 Guineas winner Poetic Flare has been kept busy so far this year but showed no signs of this when demolishing a smart field in the St James’s Palace Stakes last time out. Alcohol Free has enjoyed a similar campaign, albeit kept in races against her own sex, and would be another fascinating representative for the classic generation.
The pick of the older horses is likely to be Palace Pier who ran out a game winner of the Queen Anne Stakes at Royal Ascot. He is currently installed as market leader yet there will undoubtedly be angles for all three horses to be identified as strong Glorious Goodwood tips.

The third day of the Goodwood Festival is traditionally known as Ladies’ Day and features the Nassau Stakes. The race was elevated to Group 1 status in 1999. The late Sir Henry Cecil trained Midday to a remarkable hat-trick of Nassau Stakes victories between 2009 and 2011. Other famous names on the roll of honour include Ouija Board (2006), The Fugue (2012) and Minding (2016).
Group race action on day 3 of the Glorious Goodwood Festival also includes the Group 2 Richmond Stakes for colts and geldings over six furlongs. That is followed by the Group 3 Gordon Stakes for three-year-olds over a mile and a half, a race dominated by trainer Sir Michael Stoute. He has won the race a record ten times, most recently with Crystal Ocean (2017).
The Nassau Stakes is seen as the first real test between the three-year-old middle-distance fillies and their elders, yet it has been the classic generation that has come out best in recent years, with three-year-olds winning seven of the last ten renewals of the Nassau. Snow Lantern and Snowfall look like the strongest representatives from that age group in 2021.
Anyone looking for Glorious Goodwood horse racing tips will be well aware of Aidan O’Brien’s ability to pop up with a winner or two at the Glorious Goodwood Festival, and alongside Snowfall, he also has his stable star Love entered in the Nassau Stakes. She could be joined by James Fanshawe’s Audarya, who chased Love home at Royal Ascot last time.

Glorious Goodwood horse racing tips for day 4 will focus on the Group 2 King George Stakes over five furlongs. Just like Stradivarius in the Goodwood Cup, all eyes will be on Battaash who will be seeking a record-breaking fifth consecutive win in the race. The brilliant gelding romped to victory when breaking the record last year, yet disappointed slightly at Royal Ascot last month and arrives with a little to prove. His main opposition is likely to come from the three-year-olds Dragon Symbol and Winter Power.
There is also Group 3 action in prospect courtesy of the Thoroughbred Stakes for three-year-olds over a mile, won last year by Tilsit. While the big handicap for Glorious Goodwood tips is the Golden Mile over the same distance.
King George Stakes
Battaash has had little trouble landing this race for the last four seasons, yet the enigmatic seven-year-old should find life far tougher in 2021. He reappeared with a respectable, if still slightly underwhelming run, in the King’s Stand at Royal Ascot, and connections are adamant that he will strip fitter at the Glorious Goodwood festival with that run now under his belt.
The main danger to his attempt at Glorious Goodwood 2021 is likely to come from Dragon Symbol and Winter Power. The former has run creditably in defeat in Group 1’s over 6f the last twice and should prove equally inept back down at the minimum distance. Whilst Winter Power probably chased too strong a pace when behind Battaash at Royal Ascot and bounced right back to form at York next time.
